Gurudev Shree Sadhak Satyam & Sabiha Betûl
May 2004, Phakding, Nepal, Tengboche Trail in the Eastern Himalayas
Sabiha Betûl met Jagat Guru Shree Sadhak Satyam (Swami Akhandananda) on September 11, 2001 in Kathmandu, Nepal. In order to do justice to this meeting, she proceeded with her duties and services with utmost care and diligence.
Gurudev Shree Sadhak Satyam was born on September 13, 1949. At a young age, he was accepted into discipleship by his guru Param Pujya Gurudev Dr. Narayan Dutt Shrimaliji, and upon successful completion of his twelve-year education, he was given the name “Swami Akhandananda” by his guru and was ordained as a spiritual teacher. Gurudev left his body on November 10, 2009, and until that day he fulfilled his universal duties with complete dedication while living a very modest life in complete harmony with mundane conditions, despite his highly-developed spiritual abilities.
Throughout his life, Gurudev Shree Sadhak Satyam acted as a guide to millions of people, regardless of age or social class. Everyone who communicated with him and had the opportunity to listen to him felt hope in their hearts, better grasped the meaning of life and was inspired to proceed towards success. This is what he frequently said to his disciples:
“I don’t need any of your material gifts. Don’t go down on your knees in front of me; I don’t need your worship either. If you really want to give me something, give me all your bad traits, bad thoughts, bad actions, your anger, your impatience, your vanity and jealousy. I will give you spiritual joy in return.”
Spreading joy and peace all around him with his magnificent smile and witty jokes which carried subtle messages, Gurudev acted with courage and patience, even during the most trying moments of his illness. Out of his care and love for those around him, he would say:
“Please don’t worry, this is only a process the body needs to go through. It will be over soon…”
When he was asked why he didn’t do anything to change his situation, his answer was very clear:
“God is Supreme One. Nobody is greater than God. Nobody is as strong as Him. Nobody can violate his teaching. Sun, Water, Air, Fire and Earth, all of these function according to God’s “Inviolable Rules”. Nobody can change Nature’s Law. So, everybody must worship the Almighty Supreme Being. By worshipping Him we can be graced with Divine Qualities.”

Shree Sadhak Satyam came to Ankara on 23 April 2006 and stayed in Turkey for five and a half months. During this time, he took a close interest in Sabiha Betûl and her yoga group, supporting them spiritually.
“We should practice for the sake of wisdom alone,
for the sake of knowing ourselves, of knowing our source and
being free, loving and happy.
That’s all there is.
We don’t learn so that other people can know.
We learn so that we know and we can bless the world
with our inner glory and love.”
